She looks a fright, doesn't she? But she's still smiling. Her hair had been chopped off and she had ink all over it, as well as on her face. The ink didn't come off with peanut butter, like some inks do. I removed her head, pouring almost boiling water on her neck to loosen it. I cut the hair as closely as I could all over her head. Then I used a small crochet hook and long tweezers to remove her hair from the inside. It takes a long time to do this.
I had various types of doll hair that I thought would work but threading them through a darning needle proved difficult, if not impossible. I was getting quite bored with it all and started looking at a roll of brown hair that I think was meant to be piled on top of someone's head. I got out my glue gun and went to work.
It's a bit poufier than I like, but she's seems happy with it. I couldn't think of a way to make it lie down without getting a lot of glue in it. This is the back.
I need to trim the glue off of it. She can either be a 40s style girl or an 80's Big Hair girl.
Meanwhile, Pollyanna Sunshine now has a middy blouse to wear, and Auntie Berman found this nice red sandals for her.
